It has been a fun contest to watch and amazing to see so many active designers take part in designing the new Spreadshirt logo. From 2800+ designs it was reduced to just 15. Here are the designs that made it to the finals but unfortunately did not make the final cut (yea its sad but not everyone can win!).
And on to the prize winners who won fabulous prizes and fame.
As expected it was a difficult decision for Spreadshirt staff to choose an individual winner and they ended up choosing two. Both Lovetab and Play with the forms won the grand prize and will be reformed by the Spreadshirt graphics team into the final. The process of working with those two logos will be open and will hopefully include some community involvement.
I really thought the contest was run well and really had a wide range of prizes and awards for both designers and contributors. One of the classy things that Spreadshirt did for the finalists is have the winners announced at theDesigners Openand after-party. Its great the artists got face time recognition for their hard work and killer logos.
Spreadshirt also teamed up with other companies/organizations to have panel awards. These awards included:
The Frank Pillers Innovation Award went to Legofish for the VERY fun an amusing logo with label people that can be completely customized. LabelHeads won him Trainers from RBK Custom, Spreadshirt clothing, a watch from 121 Time, a bag from Timbuk2, and Custom Muesli from MyMuesli. I am glad to see Legofish won this award. Here is his design if you missed it:
The LaFraise Community Award given out to the person who contributed the most to making the competition was won by Pascalphilly who was clearly the most active contributor with 44 submissions and over 200 comments! Mootsie also won 5 free LaFraise T-shirts for his fun submissions.
T-Shirt Talk was also mentioned because of our outside commentary and collages of all of the logos each week. I am honored to be mentioned and thrilled to win a “Spreadshirt pack of goodies”. It was a lot of fun both watching, participating, and commenting in the contest. Thanks again Spreadshirt & LaFraise!
